For those living in or near Beverly Hills, ultrasound-assisted liposuction can help you finally achieve the trim figure that diet and exercise have failed to deliver. As with the other liposuction techniques we employ here at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc., ultrasound-assisted liposuction can permanently remove unwanted fat cells from targeted areas, allowing Dr. Chiu to sculpt your body to an ideal contour. This particular technique is especially useful for areas of the body with more fibrous tissue. To find out if this procedure is right for you, contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Chiu today.
The Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction Procedure
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is so called because it employs a specialized cannula that emits ultrasound waves to break up the fat. The cannula is the hollow metal tube used to suction the fat out once it has been broken up. With traditional liposuction, the surgeon must manually break the fat up with the cannula. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction utilizes sound waves to emulsify the fat, destroying the cell walls so that the fat liquefies. It can then be easily removed using the cannula.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is not appropriate for every body sculpting procedure. It is most often recommended for those who want stubborn fat removed from the upper back or male breast areas. Dr. Chiu can help determine whether this procedure is right for you.
Recovery from Power-Assisted Liposuction
Recovery after this procedure is similar to other forms of liposuction. Although you should notice results immediately, it takes up to six months before the swelling completely subsides and your final look settles. Dr. Chiu can advise you throughout the recovery process and let you know when you can resume certain activities, although most patients can perform non-strenuous tasks within a week.
